3 Starr Ranch® Growers JUICI® Apples, sliced
1 tsp apple pie spice (optional)
1½ cups gluten-free flour
2 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt
1¾ cups old-fashioned oatmeal
½ cup salted butter, melted, plus extra for sautéing
¾ cup brown sugar, divided
¼ cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 tbsp vanilla
½ cup white chocolate chips
Pecan pieces (optional)
Salted Caramel Ice Cream (optional)
Prep Time: 15 min
Chill Time: 20–30 min
Cook Time: 20 min
1 Set aside ¼ cup brown sugar for apple mixture. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together gluten-free flour, baking soda, salt, and old-fashioned oatmeal.
2 In a separate bowl, mix together the butter, ½ cup brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Slowly add in the dry ingredients, stirring until the cookie dough begins to take shape.
3 Stir in the white chocolate chips and chill the dough mixture in the refrigerator for about 20–30 minutes.
4 Preheat oven to 375° F. While the dough chills in the refrigerator, begin working on the apples. Add butter to a cast iron skillet and stir in the apple slices, remaining ¼ cup brown sugar, and apple pie spice blend. Sauté until fragrant and soft. Top off with a drizzle of caramel, then cover with a thick layer of cookie dough—enough to completely cover the apples.
5 Drizzle once more with caramel and top with pecan pieces. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the cookie is firm. Allow the cookie skillet to cool and top with salted caramel ice cream, additional pecan pieces, and more caramel sauce if desired. Enjoy!
